The Sun reports that a camera containing MI6 intelligence records has been sold on eBay. A man from Hemel Hempstead bought the Nikon Coolpix for just £17, only to discover its memory held pictures of rocket launchers and missiles believed to be being supplied to Al Quaeda from Iran, as well as names, pictures, fingerprints and academic records of suspected terrorists. The man has been banned from speaking to the press, but a friend told reporters that he had “downloaded his holiday pictures and saw some of rocket launchers and missiles. He knew he hadn’t taken them so asked friends about it and they suggested going to the police.”
In February, a laptop containing a Home Office data disk was purchased on eBay.
“The man has been banned from speaking to the press”
…As you’d expect. But the problem is, it pretty much gives free reigns to particularly imaginative reporters.
